Governor Whitmer Thanks You For Your Political Donations

A bunch of crazies were elected on Whitmer's coat tails in the 2018 election cycle. Thanks to the largesse of your electric utility. And you.

Anyone with DTE electric and gas service donated about $ 1 towards Governor Whitmer’s election last year. DTE donated $ 840,000 to the Progressive Advocacy Trust and the Michigan Democratic State Center.  The Progressive Advocacy Trust is an ill disguised front for the Ingham County Democrats, Ms. Whitmer’s home base.

Both groups supported Whitmer in 2018 through cascade contributions made in turn to Build A Better Michigan in the 2018 primary election and A Stronger Michigan in the 2018 general election. All these groups gamed Michigan election law, laundering corporate contributions and transforming them into political advertising supporting Whitmer.

The laundering was quite effective. You would never know that DTE was contributing to Whitmer by looking at BABM’s financial disclosures. Whitmer concealed the corporate contributions further by using snail mail to file her campaign finance reports.

These contributions eventually wound up at Whitmer’s media shop, Great America Media, a Democratic campaign management outfit on K Street in Washington which placed all her mass media advertising.  They paid for her TV ad campaign.

Build A Better Michigan was actually found to have violated Michigan campaign finance laws. Only because they were screwing other Democrats in the primary election cycle.  No one of importance would have cared if only Republicans were being screwed. BABM got a sweetheart deal from our new Democratic Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, paying only $ 37,500 and agreeing to dissolve itself.

Tu quoque

A Republican group, Michigan Jobs and Labor Foundation, was fined $ 18,000 for identical campaign law violations in 2014 The MJALF fine equaled its illegal 2014 advertising expenditures. Build A Better Michigan spent $ 1.8 million in its illegal 2018 advertising campaign, so its $ 37,500 fine was 2.1% of its illegal expenditures.

Governor Whitmer and DTE got a sweetheart deal from our new Secretary of State, Jocelyn Benson.

There Goes the Neighborhood

It appears one of our straying pachyderm within Lansing’s Recucklican Majority believes that an ever overreaching State government knows best for how your local community functions than youthe homeowner.

Local bans on short-term rentals in Michigan could be barred themselves under controversial legislation being considered by a Republican-controlled state House committee.

The bill’s sponsor, Rep. Jason Sheppard, R-Temperance, said the local zoning rules created to ban short-term rentals such as those available through Airbnb, Homeaway and VRBO infringe on private property rights and are an abuse of Michigan’s Zoning Enabling Act.

Now, bare in mind folks, this is the same jagoff that wants to ban boating for the majority of a 24 hour day on all inland lakes. Sell that one in a Pure Michigan ad campaign? Yah, Jason is a real deep thinker.

Furthermore, I smell a rat.

“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”

Is Thinkpol next???

If the title of this piece sounds familiar, then it should concern you a great deal.

If not, then you’re looking at the beginnings of the latest round “revisions” concerning what your family will be taught in Michigan’s Public Schools.

Nessel: Above The Law

This is pure evil.

Lansing — Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said Tuesday she would not enforce a state abortion ban if federal protections are overturned, and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said she would veto any new anti-abortion legislation that reaches her desk.

The first-term Democrats promised a dramatically new approach to abortion and reproductive rights in Michigan during separate speeches at a Planned Parenthood of Michigan conference in Lansing.

“You’ve got a powerful backstop in a veto from my office,” Whitmer said. “But the goal is not just to stop bad things from happening. It’s to set an agenda that respects women and girls and family planning.”

Irresponsible women getting knocked up and owning their choices = bad. “Butchering” infant boys and girls = okay, got it?

Why are you seeing things like this occur in Jason’s post?

Whitmer, Nessel and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson make up an “amazing” “triumvirate of women that protect us all in the state,” Planned Parenthood of Michigan CEO Lori Carpentier said during an introduction.

Boobus Michiganderus you’re getting the government you elected.

Oh, by the way… why does the Detroit News reference Rick Snyder vetos in the article?

Crook County, East?

Sub Secreto, Sub Silentio

On the same day Kim Foxx, the State’s Attorney for C(r)ook County, Illinois, ditched the false police report charges against Jussie Smollett, Michigan’s Court of Appeals endorsed Ann Arbor’s successful effort to completely conceal the identity of the Muslim woman who made false charges to AAPD which claimed a white man tried to set her on fire. She apparently suffered a momentary mental breakdown, thinking she was Yazidi and a white guy was ISIS.

This incident supposedly occurred on November 11, 2016, immediately after Donald Trump’s 2016 General Election victory. It was a hate crime hoax which specifically targeted Donald Trump supporters. This Muslim woman was never charged by the Washtenaw County Prosecutor Brian L. Mackie, nor identified by the Ann Arbor Police.

This hoax inspired a subsequent anti-Trump hoax in Ann Arbor four days later where another female hoaxer, Halley Bass, was identified, charged, and plead guilty. Ms. Bass was not Muslim, just a very creative student in a Woman’s Literature class at the University of Michigan who hated Donald Trump and his supporters.

The authorities are all over this.  Not….

Mackinac Island Cuckservative and Democratic Socialist Festival

Prediction: lowest turnout ever.

Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Republican critic of President Donald Trump, is set to be the keynote speaker at this year’s Mackinac Policy Conference and talk about the “current national political climate,” the Detroit Regional Chamber said Thursday.

Oh, the guy that loser Brian Calley endorsed in 2016?

Liars gonna lie, yes? Reckon that’s why Kasich works for Very Fake News.

Other scheduled conference speakers include Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen[nomics] Whitmer; former Florida governor and 2016 Republican presidential hopeful Jeb [Please clap] Bush; Democratic strategist and Fox News contributor Donna Brazile [Crooked Hillary’s BFF]; Stacey Abrams [Tank], the 2018 Democratic candidate for Georgia governor; Detroit Mayor Mike [Demo Disaster] Duggan; and Michigan congressional members.

Am sorely disappointed that they were not able to get Maxine ‘Peach foty fi’ Waters to attend. It would complete their agenda.
